Abstract: Renewable energy systems are being used all over the world in isolation or on hybrid modes. No work is available for integrating all existing green energy sources to develop and design a model for specific application. No template is readily available to assess and implement the most appropriate mix of the renewable sources of energy for specific purpose of irrigation in hilly areas. The proposed flexible modular design can be easily adapted for different levels of applications. This will be based on requirement and availability of water in the region of interest viz. Uttarakhand hills in lower western Himalayas. The paper dwells upon utilising wind, solar, gravitational flow of water, hydraulic hammer and barometric pressure for capillary lift.
